Lately I’ve been missing being outside. Scurrying among buildings and subway stations in the cold does not count.
So this photograph is a lovely escape. I took it in September when we were in southern Vermont, visiting our good friends Emily and Ellen who had moved there from New York City two months prior.
The weekend was packed with beautiful sites, good conversation and delicious eats- including this table of appetizers one evening before dinner. Ridiculously rich gouda fondue, homemade croutons, organic apple slices from the orchard we’d visited that morning, green olives, and a full-bodied red wine.
All this we enjoyed around a fire in their backyard as their labradoodle, Scout, begged for samples. Aaaahh.
These days I’ve nearly forgotten what it’s like for daylight to stay past 5pm.
